Scandal and popularity
The hashtag “drakevideo” explodes
On Wednesday, the hashtag #drakevideo became the most popular hashtag among US users . However, this did not affect the position of social network X, but on the contrary, it topped the download rankings in the App Store.
X and its leadership positions
The Verge claims that the popularity of the social network X in the App Store is connected specifically with the leak of Drake’s intimate video. X spokesman Joe Benarroja said the company actively removes such posts, but journalists found several publications with videos that have received millions of views.

Moderation and new moderators
Elon Musk has reduced the teams responsible for content moderation, but now plans to launch a center for “countering harmful content” and invite 100 new moderators.
Surge in downloads and interview with Tucker Carlson
The increase in downloads of app X could be due to the announcement of a new interview with former Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who decided to interview at Putin's in Moscow. According to The Wall Street Journal, the interview should be published today on X.
Waiting for the interview to be published on X
Musk is not stopping the publication of Tucker Carlson's interview on X, so it will most likely be released as expected.
